Adjust Tempo

• Aug 21, 2020 - 00:20

How do I adjust Tempo slightly? I wrote a 17 second jingle that I would like to slow to 20 seconds. Also, is there a standard length for radio or TV promo spots? Thanks, Susan


To adjust the tempo, select the tempo text and adjust the BPM in the inspector. I'm not sure about promo spot lengths. There are probably 3 or 4 standard lengths.

Press F11 or View >Play Panel. Adjust the tempo and play it back until you are happy with it. Note that this only affect playback temporarily. To make this permanent you need to adjust the tempo marking on the score by a factor of (in this case) 17/20. E.g. if the tempo on the score is 120 then change it to 102.
